MapuSoft Technologies Releases New Ada Development Tools

Mobile, AL, August 26, 2009 – MapuSoft Technologies today announced the release of a new Ada to C/C++ product line. The release includes a conversion and a compiler tool which support Ada 83 and Ada 95 source code.

  • Ada-C/C++ Changer allows developers to easily convert software written in Ada code to C/C++ utilizing the OS PAL™ (OS Porting and Abstraction Lab) tool. The resultant C/C++ software can be integrated with the robust OS Abstractor® environment to support a wide variety of host and target OS platforms. The automatic conversion process eliminates the need for costly and tedious code rewrites, providing extensive resource savings. Ada-C/C++ Changer generates ANSI C output as well as certain C++ features while preserving Ada code’s comments, files, structures and variable names to ease ongoing code maintenance.
  • Ada-PAL Compiler functions within OS PAL™ to compile Ada code. The tool can also be integrated with various C/C++ cross-compilers to generate binaries for a wide variety of target platforms.
  • MapuSoft offers the software reuse products OS Abstractor®, OS Changer® and OS PAL™ to help developers streamline development processes and reuse their embedded software on one or more operating systems. Target operating systems supported include VxWorks® 5x & 6x, Linux® 2.4 & 2.6/RT Linux, LynxOS®, Solaris®, Unix®, eCOS®, Windows XP®/Vista®/CE®/Mobile®, Nucleus®, ThreadX®, MQX®, QNX®, T-Kernel® and µITRON®.

    OS Abstractor provides a standard OS interface architecture, standard real-time OS APIs, POSIX APIs, and µITRON APIs to give users the ability to effectively develop code independent of the underlying OS to protect software investment and to easily expand support to multiple operating systems. OS Changer protects user’s existing software investment and knowledge base by giving the ability to reuse pSOS®, VxWorks and Nucleus legacy code on different operating systems. OS PAL (OS Porting & Abstraction Lab) leverages on existing OS Abstractor and OS Changer technologies and provides an Eclipse® based IDE to easily port, abstract and optimize code on a host machine and run the application on different target OS platforms. A free evaluation of OS Changer, OS PAL and OS Abstractor can be downloaded at
